A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.

Hi Everyone

I hope your week has been progressing well.

My life is still busy and was extra complicated by the boiler deciding to throw a wobbly (along with the Christmas tree lights!!).  But always looking for a silver lining to every dark cloud I consoled myself with the fact that it was better these things went wrong now than in two week's time!!

So the London Kids are finally installed in their new home and the keys to their old flat have been returned to the landlord.

Now it is time for them to sort out all the important things .. .. like internet connection LOL!!!

They have just been in touch to say thank you for their new home card which arrived with them today .. .. so I can now share it with you.  They had great difficulty getting a sofa bed out of their flat so this image made them smile as it reminded them of the hassle they had

This used:

Image:  Lili of the Valley "Moving Day"
Sentiment:  Computer Generated using font "2 Peas Barefoot Professor"
X-Cut Flower Punch
Woodware Heart Punch
Josy Rose Nail Heads
Ribbon and Key Charm from My Crafty Stash Box

My card was just one of my normal 144 x 144 square ones with the top cut into a roof shape.

They spotted the heart(s) straightaway LOL!!!  Lots of hearts needed though to wish them lots of love and happiness in their new home.

Time now to head off downstairs for The Apprentice - the number of candidates are dwindling now!!

Hope you are all keeping safe and warm!!
